CMS Families, Parents, and Students, Welcome Back to Cody Middle School! We are excited to be opening our doors and welcoming in all of our CMS Broncs and Fillies for the new school year. CMS has a new administrative team this year and both Principal Tedjeske and Assistant Principal Gogan are anxious to meet all of our families, parents, and students. We wanted to reach out to our CMS family to keep them up-to-date on all of the exciting things happening at CMS this week! First, our school is open to the public Monday, August 23 and Tuesday, August 24. Folks are invited to drop by and meet the CMS staff, tour the building, figure out lockers, and get settled in before the start of the school year. Second, our first day of school will look a little different this year. CMS Staff will be meeting students of all grade levels at the front doors this year. Schedules, if not already received, will be handed out to students at this time. Students will enter the building in different areas, according to grade level. All CMS Staff will be on hand to meet students, help with any locker issues, and answer any questions. Students will be allowed to enter the building at 7:50 AM. At 8:00 AM students will report to their first (1st) period class. From 8:25 to 11:30 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students will rotate through different stations throughout the school. At 11:36 AM, depending on their schedules, students will report to either their Advisory, Lunch, or Recess period. During this advisory period students will be receiving their Chromebooks. From 12:52 - 3:30 , students, according to grade level, will again rotate through stations. CMS Admin and teachers will be reviewing the Student Handbook, Standard Response Protocol for emergencies, as well as answering any student questions. Students will be released from CMS at 3:30, and that will complete their first day for the 2021 - 2022 school year!! Family / Parent Drop Off and Pick Up For families and parents dropping off and picking up students, please be patient. CMS will utilize both lanes for pick up and drop off. Please be sure to follow the flow of traffic and watch for students crossing the street. We know the first day of school can feel overwhelming, but please do your best to follow CMS Administration and Staff directions. Our goal is to unload and load students in an efficient and safe manner. School Nurse Note Each student will need to continue to bring their own water bottle this year. Students will not be provided with paper or plastic cups throughout the day. Also please be sure that if your student has a health plan or needs any medications while at school that those are brought into the nurse. Our nurse will be sending a more detailed email about vaccination records, emergency health plans and prescribed/over the counter medications soon. Chromebook Device Students will receive their chromebook device during advisory classes on the first day of school. The computer protection fee of $25 is due by then and can be paid for at the front office.

Greetings Everyone, I hope you are all enjoying the summer. My name is Nathan Tedjeske and I'm the new principal at Cody Middle School. I wanted to have the opportunity to get to meet some of the families of our students this upcoming school year, as well as give people the chance to meet me as well. On July 6th from 9-11 and July 15th from 1-3, I will be at Rawhide coffee to do just that. There is no agenda and it isn't formal, but it is a chance to sit down and have a conversation and get to know one another. I hope that the available times give people the chance to stop by, but if neither time works and you'd still like to meet, email me at email@example.com and we'll set something up. Have a wonderful day and enjoy the rest of the summer!

CMS Update- the mask exemption request from the Park County Health Officer was received on Saturday. This allows for masks to be optional in the school setting. At CMS, we ask that all students, staff and parents/guardians be respectful of the choices each person makes in regards to one’s personal choice. Those that want to continue wearing them are free to do so, those that do not want to wear them are free to take them off. Thanks for your help and we are glad that all sides have this option.
A big "THANK YOU" to our Cody Middle School volunteers!!
